When Roger Federer steps onto the court tonight for the first match of the U.S. Open, he’ll do so in the new NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3. The sneaker melds the design and lifestyle-aesthetic of a basketball sneaker with Federer’s signature Nike–the Aiz Zoom Vapor 9. By the way–the inspiration comes not just from any basketball lifestyle, but that of Michael Jordan, thereby making this shoe essentially the baby of an athletic power couple. Once Federer’s served (haha) inspiration on the court, you can snag a pair tomorrow.
